I wonder why Meijer is focusing on the Midwest instead of moving down toward Kentucky/Tennessee. Is it that Walmart's presence is stronger in the South than the Michigan/Ohio/Wisconsin area?

Meijer is more of a regional chain, and probably cautious where expanding. Some stores don't do well in new areas. Then there is the whole distribution thing to think about. However, they could potentially fill a void where Kmart is closing stores....
